    Increased emphasis on energy conservation and reduction of purchased electric power bills have resulted in an increased awareness of the importance of capacitors on industrial systems. Larger banks of capacitors are being considered for installation and many questions relating to the application must be answered. Most of the commonly encountered factors relating to equipment selection, location on... View full abstract»

    A loaded induction motor's response to small changes in supply frequency may be described in terms of a weighting or transfer function applicable at the given steady-state operating point. An experimental method is described in which the relevant weighting function is found ``on-line'' by disturbing the system with a low level random test signal and cross correlating the appropriate input and outp...

    Open-delta/open-delta and open-wye/open-delta transformer banks are often used as an economic means of supplying simultaneous single-phase and 3-phase loads in rural areas. If the 3-phase load is an induction motor, the inherent voltage unbalance causes increased losses and uneven heating that may lead to motor failure. often these motors are submersible or deep well pump motors located in remote ...

    The speed control of a three-phase squirrel cage induction motor by employing triacs in the lines which operate in the normal phase control mode is described. The inherent limitation of low circuit commutated (dv/dt), which makes the triac circuit somewhat unreliable, has been overcome by suitably designing the snubber circuit. The closed-loop speed regulation of the system is then investigated by... View full abstract»

    A three-phase ac power control circuit using power transistors which operate in a high-frequency chopping mode is described. The circuit is capable of handling several kilowatts of power at any lagging load power factor angle and the output voltage can be smoothly controlled from zero to full supply voltage. The circuit has inherently fast response and the high-frequency ripple at the output is ea... View full abstract»

    An earlier paper described the use of high power thyristors in booster power supplies for glass melting. Since that time, the availability of even larger thyristors has allowed the economical design of larger power supply systems. This paper describes the design features of a 4.3-MW thyristor-controlled power-regulated glass melting power system. The system is installed on a 115-ton mixed melter f... View full abstract»

    The use of computer modeling with finite-difference techniques to solve for electrostatic fields by successive overrelaxation in regions where no exact analytic solution exists is well documented. However, for irregular Dirchlet boundary curves in two dimensions, which do not contain the nodes of a regular net, various interpolation schemes must be used. It is shown in this paper that these interp... View full abstract»

    Operation of an elastomeric blade requires the use of a boundary lubricant to remove residual xerographic toner from the photoreceptor efficiently. A radioactive tracer technique was used to study the behaviour of a number of lubricants used in the xerographic process. Both filming and nonfilming type lubricants were investigated using this technique. The results indicated that the lubricant film ... View full abstract»
